Re: forgot security code (password for router)
To reset your router hold down the reset button in the back or bottom. hold it down for 30seconds and the router is reset to factory defaults, if you need anything else use the add a comment button. Thanks

Your laptop still insists on using the old password that's why it can't
connect. Go to Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and
Sharing Center > Manage Wireless Networks. Select your router's SSID.
Right click on it and change Properties > Security > Show
characters. The old password that you forgot should appear. You may then
change it to the latest one.
You may also click on the wifi signal icon on the lower right corner of
your Taskbar, right click on the router's SSID, select Properties >
Security > Show characters to reveal the old password you forgot and
change it to the latest one.
Welcome to Fixya. If you forgot the code or the Network Key (Passphrase) we can access the Wireless Settings Page of the router to obtain the information needed to connect your iphone.
To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access your router you need to use a computer that is connected to it. Open a Browser then type 192.168.0.1 or http://routerlogin.net. The Default username is admin and the password is password. Password is case sensitive.
Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key or Passphrase. The Network Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure. Network Key is case sensitive.

Welcome to Fixya. Im not quite sure what password you're referring to if ti's the router password or the Network Password or Network Key. Listed below are the steps on how to obtain the Network Password and the Router Password.
For you to get you Security Code or Network Key you need to access your router.To access your router just open a Browser then type 192.168.2.1, password is blank. Click on the Security under Wireless. You can change the security type of your router to WPA, WEP or you can also Disable the security. Under that you can see the Security Code or Network Key. You can also Personalize the Passphrase or Network Key so that you can easily remember it.
You can also reset the router to its factory state but you need to keep in mind that all settings will be back to its default settings. To reset the router press and hold the small reset button at the back of the router using a Pen or a Paper Clip for 15-30 seconds.
If you think this is helpful rate me and don't forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.
For that you need to access your router settings Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable. Then you can access it with default link http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 for belkin routers http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.0 Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password" Then you can see configuration of router. Then check wireless security then check WEP or WAP code add new code there if it is in * or# format then save settings and restart router. So then you can connect internet with that new password. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
For that you need to connect your router to computer with ethernet cable. Then access it with following link. http://192.168.15.1 type user name ads "admin" and if it ask for password then type "admin" or blank or 'password" If you can't access it then you have to reset it. press RESET button for 10 seconds it in back side of router. Then followthe above procedure. Then you can see configuration page. Go to wireless then security. Set your wep code new or write down wep code then save settings and exit. WEP code is your password to connect wi fi network. Let me know if you need more assistanse. Thanks.
first access your router with following default ip http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 type username as "admin" and password is "admin" or blank then go to wi fi security advancedd u see there encryption security enter encryptin code it is passwordd wich prompt when u clik on connect.
you can log into your router. You have to be hard wired into the router. Ethernet cable. once you are hard wired connected type 192.168.1.1 in your address bar and you will get a log in screen. Hopefully you saved your login but if there isn't, just push ok and it will take you into the router screen if you never set up a user name and password, from there you push the wireless tab and look up the password. If you can't remember your log in. you may just need to reset the router by the reset button and set everything up again.
if you hit the reset button on your router you can restore it to factory defaults. then, you can log into the default IP address of your router and change the password to what you want. This is the only way to change it- being able to change your password without having the old one would be a GLARING security hole. If you update your question with the model # of your belkin I can find the manual online. It will list the default IP address, username and password that you will need to access it after the reset.
